Cebu Pacific Airlines, a Philippines-based carrier, devised a plan to liven up the in-flight safety lectures: Have the flight attendants dance to Lady Gaga and Katy Perry. Well, that’s certainly one way to get people to pay attention. READ FULL STORY
Tag: Lady Gaga (91-100 of 124)
Some of us were still reeling from Lady Gaga’s meaty VMA dress, but since it’s been nearly a month and shocking and awing is in her DNA, she’s back with some new fodder. Last night, the pop star made a surprise appearance at New York’s The Oak Room wearing — wait for it — a dress made of strawberry blond hair.
Much like the meat dress, it begs the question: Is it real? And the follow-up question: Does it itch?
The jury’s still out, but what do you think of Gaga’s newest get-up? Her meat dress will be turned into jerky, so what could her hair dress come back as?
Lady Gaga: 18 Outrageous Outfits
meat dress at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. Gaga told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres she meant no disrespect to vegans or vegetarians. “It has many interpretations — but for me, this evening, it’s that if we don’t stand up for what we believe in, if we don’t fight for our rights, pretty soon we’re gonna have as much rights as the meat on our bones. AND I am not a piece of meat.”Lady Gaga made headlines after sporting a
Okay, so Gaga didn’t entirely clear up the big question marks surrounding that evening’s fashion choice. Nor did she say anything about the future of her raw dress. Lady Gaga probably wouldn’t be caught wearing the same outfit twice, and this isn’t the sort of look that just retires to the back of your closet. (Unless, of course, your closet is some sort of meat-packing plant.)
The designer of the dress, Franc Fernandez, set the record straight when he told the MTV style blog the dress was, in fact, intended to be worn only once. But the now infamous meat garment is not headed for life in a deep freezer. Instead, “the dress will go through a process where it becomes a sort of ‘jerky’ and will be archived,” Fernandez told E!. Yum?
The thought of anyone eating Lady Gaga’s meat dress-turned-jerky grosses me out. Am I the only one? And does this mean there’s a jerky dress in our future? Let’s hope not.
She’s inspired thousands of her monsters to dress like her. So it’s only natural that Lady Gaga has decided to inspire her fans to smell like her, too — at least that’s what the pop star can hope for with the launch of her first fragrance, due out in spring 2012, according to Women’s Wear Daily. That gives Lady G plenty of time to ponder the scent.
Will she take a cue from her VMA dress and go for notes of bacon and flank steak? Or will her her love for tea cups steer her towards earl grey, mint, and chamomile? Or, in Lady Gaga’s signature everything-has-a-message manner, will it smell like nothing to symbolize the unnecessary masks we wear to hide from our true selves? Only time will tell — and smell.
Would you wear a perfume by Gaga? What do you think it should smell like?

last night’s questionable performance by E!’s late-night queen Chelsea Handler, I started thinking about how few VMA emcees have been widely lauded for their performances over the years. Just peruse this list of past hosts. Are any of these people — ranging from Bette Midler (yes!) and Dan Akroyd to Dennis Miller (twice!) and Ben Stiller — remembered for doing an exceptionally good job?Could hosting the VMAs be the most unrewarding job in Hollywood? In light of
Sure, a handful, like Jimmy Fallon and Chris Rock, may be remembered with some level of fondness. But unlike, say, the Oscars or the Emmys — where, for example, Steve Martin and Neil Patrick Harris have won rave reviews for their respective recent hosting stints — the very nature of the VMAs dictates that the lion’s share of the morning-after buzz will focus on outrageous stunts or musical performances, and not on the host. Handler seemed to be aware of this conundrum last night, and it resulted in an unfortunate “look how craaaazy I can be!” vibe that downplayed her brash intelligence and felt inauthentic to boot.

I’ll admit it: After approximately 54,684 listens, I was beginning to grow weary of Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face.” But that was before I heard Larry King and Ryan Seacrest’s rendition of the song on the American Idol host’s radio show Thursday. (How’s that for a dream duet?)
Obviously, I’m awarding Ryan a Simon Cowell-branded “dreadful” for his screechy performance of Gaga’s hit. But I’m going to surprise everyone by inviting Larry to join Randy Jackson’s dawg pound. Because the CNN host definitely did his thang. Even if that “thang” is singing like he was eating a mashed-up bowl of peas. Happy Friday, everyone!
Lady Gaga will entertain her Little Monsters at a show in Pittsburgh this weekend. So, naturally, the Art Institute of Pittsburgh decided to pay homage to the star in the form of a…dinosaur? (Click here to take a look.) Yeah, you read that right. A T-Rex to be more specific. (Now, all I can think of is THIS. You’re welcome.)
Anyway, Creation Rex, who lives at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, often chooses his wardrobe in an effort to honor some of the biggest pop culture phenoms of our time, including this Star Wars outfit. (He also carried an Olympic torch during this year’s winter games.) Rex’s newest choice features some Gaga-inspired 13-inch heels, a blonde wig, lipstick, and an illuminated disco stick to boot!
